Title: Do Differences Make a Difference?
The Impact of Human Capital Diversity, Experience and Compensation on Firm Performance in Engineering Consulting
Author: Laursen, Keld; Mahnke, Volker; Vejrup-Hansen, Per
Abstract: The paper investigates the relationship between human capital characteristics and firm performance in engineering consulting. Because general experience, firm-specific human capital and diversity carry specific costs and benefits we hypothesize curvilinear (taking inverted U-shapes) relations to firm performance. We find little effect of general experience and firm-specific human capital, but the findings give some support for the curvilinear relation between performance and human capital diversity.
